Ritika is a Junior Neuroscience major.

   

Advice from Ritika:

Of course it’s important to study, join organizations, and volunteer/work, but don’t forget to relax too! Dedicate some ‘me’ time to destress and unwind by doing a certain hobby, exercise (a simple walk around campus is enough!), or catch up on that new big show! Being able to balance your time is crucial to not only your grades, but also your health.

Raiyyan is a Sophomore Neuroscience major.

 

Advice from Raiyyan:

Have a weekly schedule for each of your classes. This schedule should include a precursory glance at material (skimming a textbook chapter for key vocab/looking at learning outcomes), attending lecture (or viewing a prerecorded lecture/doing assigned reading), and then doing practice problems or flashcards of some kind depending on the class. Taking a methodical approach to learning content that has you pass over the material multiple times makes it such that you've already done most of the work when it is time to begin studying for an exam.

Advice from Asha:

Take advantage of resources such as office hours and tutoring! Don't let your fear of asking dumb questions stop you from learning.

Zoom etiquette suggestions:

  1. Be sure to mute your mic whenever you are not speaking.
  2. Consider muting your video if you are completing a non-Zoom related task.
  3. Close unneeded applications on your computer to keep the video optimally functioning.
  4. You might want to use a headset with an external mic for best hearing and speaking capabilities.
  5. When you are speaking, let others know that you are finished.
  6. If you want to speak, use the “raise hand” feature that is available at the bottom center of your screen.
  7. You can ask questions using the “Chat” feature on the bottom and center of your screen.
  8. Be mindful of your background lighting. 
  9. Be sure that there is nothing visually distracting.
  10. Remember to sign out or “leave the meeting” when the session is finished.
